@Archaeolibrary, @GoddessFish, @DeniseCarbo,
Single mom of twin boys, Olivia Banner, has her hands full juggling life’s demands. She doesn’t have time for her mysterious new neighbor or all the questions his presence conjures up, even if he is a handsome devil.
Toss in a complicated relationship with her ex-husband, meddlesome family members, and going back to school to provide a stable financial future for her and her boys, and Olivia turns to her gal pals for guidance.
Sometimes playing it safe is the right choice, and other times leaping into the unknown can lead to all the dreams you never knew you had coming true.
Luke Hollister stands on my doorstep.
I blink several times, hoping he’ll disappear. Nope, still there.
“I think this is yours.”
He holds out the plate I gave him cookies on—like three months ago.
“Umm…yeah, thanks.” I take the plate.
“Listen, about the other day. It was a crappy day and then I fell off the stupid ladder, making it even worse. Then you showed up and I took my frustration out on you. I hope there are no hard feelings.”
He holds out his hand. “I’m Luke, by the way, Luke Hollister.”
Okay…no need to tell him I know his name because I looked it up when he moved in. “Olivia Banner.” I shake his hand once and snatch back my hand, hiding it behind my back just in case he has any plans to grab hold of it again and drag me back to his house and chop me up into a million pieces.
“So, we’re good?”
“Uh, yeah, sure.” I’ll be watching every move you make, buddy. Take one suspicious move towards my boys and I’ll be the one chopping you up into a million pieces.
3 out of 5 (good)
Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Olivia is a single mum who is struggling with twin boys, an ex who is slightly difficult, and trying to better herself. She doesn't think she deserves love until she starts to interact with her new neighbour.
Olivia is literally trying everything she can to be a better person that she can be proud of. Her boys are now 10 and her life has been on hold bringing them up. She hasn't been in a relationship for a while, it's almost like she feels she isn't somebody who can be loved. Its nice to see the way she grows through the book and how much her confidence grows. The book pulls you in and you wonder if she's going to have what she deserves.
I enjoyed this book and it is very well written. It's been well thought out, all feelings have been considered, and definitely had care go into each characters life and dialect.
What would you do to get to know your hot mysterious neighbour!?
